For over 20 years, Tiempo has been synonymous with premium leather football boots. The new Tiempo Legend 6 builds upon that legacy with innovative craftsmanship for dominant touch. “Tiempo players start the attack,” says Nike Football Designer Vianney de Montgolfier. “We prioritize the touch and precision they depend on. With Tiempo Legend 6, we challenged ourselves to work with legendary materials in a new way.”
With three Ballon d’Or awards and over 500 career goals, Cristiano Ronaldo is the all-time leading scorer for both club and country.
While he continues to make history on the pitch, Nike is chronicling Ronaldo’s past through a new series of seven Mercurial Superfly CR7 boots, unveiled one at a time over the next several seasons, beginning with Chapter 1: Savage Beauty.
Savage Beauty takes its cues from Madeira, the volcanic Portuguese island where the player was born.
“Madeira will always be close to my heart,”
says Ronaldo. “I’m so happy to represent my island all over the world. It’s a fantastic feeling.”
The lava-inspired print on Savage Beauty is one of the most intricate Nike has ever produced on a pair of boots. A collaboration between Nike’s World Headquarters and its expert artisans in Montebelluna, Italy, the vibrant, six-color graphic flows from toe to heel to accentuate Ronaldo’s speed. Supplementary color on the medial side adds extra flash while a new, smaller CR7 logo appears on the lateral side of the heel and an iridescent white Swoosh complements the design.
MERCURIAL SUPERFLY CR7 SAVAGE BEAUTY
Inspired by Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest scoring achievements, the new Mercurial Superfly CR7 324K Gold and Mercurial Superfly CR7 Quinhentos celebrate the player’s phenomenal finishing skills. The colorways take cues from two of Ronaldo’s favorite Mercurial Vapor 3 designs.
NikeFootballX releases new seasonal colorways of the MagistaX, MercurialX and HypervenomX in both indoor court (IC) and turf (TF) versions that anticipate the surfaces and dynamic underfoot-play intrinsic to small-sided football. Notably, the boots feature recycled Nike Grind rubber on high-abrasion, drag areas to enhance durability on hard surfaces.
For 20 years Adidas’ Predator has been a staple boot in the industry, yes you read that right 20 years! This year not only sees the predator hit the big 2-0 but also make a move towards what the Predator Faithful fans have been calling out for since the boot received a radical redesign with the Predator LZ.
Continuing the storied history of the boot that transformed the industry, Nike launches the new generation of the Mercurial to match the speed of today’s game.
In a season as tight as this where margins between glory and disaster are smaller than ever, dreams can be realised or crushed in the blink of an eye. It falls to the players who take fate into their own hands to Unlock the Game and deliver when it matters most.
Meet the Magista, Nike’s first venture into the football boot market with their groundbreaking Flyknit Technology. Offering an unprecedented fit, feel and control on the ball, the knitted bootie will change the way we view boots forever.
